The studio apartment is spacious, very clean and maintained to a very high standard. The view over Doubtless Bay is fantastic and every apartment has a deck that gets a view. The gardens are lovely. The managers are super friendly. This has to be 'one of the best' when looking for a magic spot for a weekend getaway and value...

As soon as we arrived our hosts Mary and Alan welcomed us to By the Bay. Our apartment was great and the view of Coopers Beach from our balcony was stunning. Mary and Alan were on always on hand if we needed help on where to go or places to eat. It was hard to leave.

We loved this place - the location right on the beautiful beach is fantastic and the apartment was extremely good - large and very clean, with all necessary amenities and with a lovely balcony overlooking the beach. Sadly we only had one night here, but would love to visit again and stay longer next time.

A superb location right on the beach ( 20 yards). The apartment is very comfortable, well equipped and Mary and Alan who look after it made sure we had all we wanted. We found it a good base to go to Cape Reigna and 90 mile Beach and explore the hidden bays, which are spectacular.

We had a lovely time here. Fantastic views on two balconies and many rooms. The managers were extremely helpful and the apartment was fabulously clean. There were also kayaks to use which was a plus because the bay is ideal for them. My only issue was the layout with our 4 bedroom apartment - the kitchen was at the opposite...

“The beautiful roomy master bedroom is upstairs and the bathroom is downstairs. My friends, a couple, one of whom is elderly, chose to sleep in the smaller double downstairs to be near the bathroom and avoid climbing the stairs. As a single traveller I slept in the perfectly adequate and very comfortable twin bedded room. Sadly, the lovely master did not get used! ”
